Describe what you have, and how you are using it. From there you will get much better assistance.
lots of questions come to mind.

Tough to correct what we don't know. Are you hunting from a stand or ground? Are you de-scenting all your equipment and yourself? Do you know the lay of the land to hunt bottlenecks, pinch points, wind direction? If you don't know the travel patterns it's tough to hunt blind so to speak. With the rut near using estrus scented wicks should help you to see some kind of buck. Are the tracks all pointed in one direction would indicate only morning or night travel or equally both ways on the trails, indicates morning and night travels. This is the perfect time to do some light rattleing with a grunt call to change things up some. If you're not seeing some deer in a few hunts then change the area you are hunting. You should be seeing some rub and scrape lines and that's where I'd be hunting.

Valleys are tough to hunt as they tend to keep your scent low if you can move up and out of the valley looking for a couple of trails that intersect. I don't like to hunt the very top of hills either. You're going to need to spend more time in the stand or non-hunt days to learn more about your area/deer movement. I don't know how much experience you have under your belt but a good mentor might be of value for you if you can find one close by.
